“Saturday tour”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Toured on a Saturday with our grandson who works there. Very impressive building but devoid of decoration until you get to the offices of the Heads of the Departments. Still very interesting to see.

“A blur, but very interesting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The tour was conducted so quickly you barely had any chance to read and observe all that was going on inside. The guides go a great job though!

“Historical and Largest Office Building In The World.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The Pentagon is an amazing building. Filled with military history, it's the heart of the Military Industrial Complex. Employees get around by golf card the corridors are so expansive.

“Massive bulding easily seen from the highway.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Like other reviewers have mentioned, we viewed the Pentagon while driving around the area- going to the Tidal Basin and visiting Arlington National Cemetery. It is a massive building- no apparent landscaping, just the concrete walls seen from the road and highway. If we had more time in D.C. we might have gone for the tour, but as it is, as a tourist, there are a lot of other things to see and visit.
